Our goal is to provide critical goods to the right people at the right time during all phases of a disaster. The Good360 disaster team is working hard to mitigate waste and inefficiencies while assisting victims of these wildfires to return to a normal life. Victims impacted include the region’s seasonal agricultural workers, who face loss of jobs and housing due to the blazes. We can amplify every dollar contributed by a minimum factor of 10, meaning that for every $10 donated, we can distribute at least $100 in needed goods.
